2022 Color Forecast Is Centered Around Warm, Nostalgic Tones

The 2022 Color Forecast Is Centered Around Warm, Nostalgic Tones

Sherwin-Williams has officially debuted their 2022 Colormix Forecast, a nuanced prediction of the colors that will reign supreme in homes around the world next year. 

“The 2022 forecast is composed of 40 hues and four palettes—Method, Opus, Dreamland, and Ephemera,” the brand shared in a press release. “The palettes tell stories about sustainability, deep and spiritual maximalism, the connection between technology and mindfulness, and nostalgia for the 1960s to the 1980s.” 

The lauded paint company predicts that these hues will begin a transition away from the muted neutrals that have dominated over the past few years. Instead, we will move towards warmer, more dynamic colorways—because after over a year stuck inside, staring at our own four walls, we are ready for change.

According to the brand, 2022 is going to be all about warm (not monochrome!) neutrals, bold metallics, organic greens, and nostalgic reds. 

Collectively, the forecast is called MODE, and it contains 40 hues and four curated palettes that include Method, Opus, Dreamland, and Ephemera. 

Let’s dive into the forecast’s four palettes, filled with all kinds of inspired, curated shades you will want to add to your home, stat.

Method

A celebration of the outdoors is exactly what we need after a claustrophobic year, which is why this palate, above, alternates between the “organic neutrals and tonal luxury” we often find in nature.  You will also see signs of art deco, modern organics, and 1980s postmodernism inside this palette, composed of warm shades.

Opus

Leave minimalism behind with the Opus palette, which draws on dark hues and bold metallics, notes the brand. “Blackberry SW 7577 stirs up theatrical marvel, while Iron Ore SW 7069 explores the darker, edgier side of creative expression,” explains the press release. These hues embody maximalism at their core—and can create bold, dynamic looks in your home.

Dreamland

If you’re looking for a way to embrace “hygge” in 2022, turn to the Dreamland palette. This collection combines soft forms and “modern Scandinavian minimalism” to bring your romantic vision to life. “Dreamland incorporates berry tones and organic greens, like Rosé SW 6290 and Cucuzza Verde SW 9038, which highlight balance and the vernal sweetness of bud and bloom,” adds a Sherwin-Williams brand representative.

Ephemera

If you want your indoor spaces to conjure up simpler times, try the Ephemera color story, which evokes “a warm nostalgia and unwavering optimism” by combining the best of what was with the

 

possibility of everything that may yet be. “Unifying retro futurism, meaning, and memory, the Ephemera palette merges colors reminiscent of bygone basics, such as Sierra Redwood SW 7598, Peace Yellow SW 2857 and Basque Green SW 6426,” reads the  Sherwin-Williams release.
